American Citizens were in the sights of US Nazi’s for many more years and regularly violated our rights.
Look, whatever. It is impossible for me not appreciate what Snowden did, and what he saved us from we will never know. This regime was fast tracking primarily the USA to the ash heap.
We remain in grave danger, but the enemy is exposed now to the bone.
How was this tricking him? He had no where else to go once the US cancelled his passport. He was stuck.
Just like cattle. You cut off their options, except for the one way out and they take it.
This story is pure unadulterated cow patty.
Snowden did the honorable thing and found a way to get national attention on a sore subject with me.
Hell, this has been argued about at Stanford Law Review, The Electronic Frontier Foundation and many other notable organizations.
Sprin, AT&T, Vodafone, Vonage, MCI MCIWorldcom and every other telecom company and ISP are on record of acquiescence to an unlawful request and even more UNLAWFUL practice of regularly violating our rights to:
Unlawful search and seizure of private records and all communication.
UNLAWFUL seizure of said information.
They regularly violate wiretapping laws, provisions in CALEA and a myriad of other protections litigated and settled.
Snowden is a hero not some super spy and definitely not a traitor of fellow Americans.
I picked up a tidbit today....The Taliban actually opened an office in Qatar last year. I'm still shaking my head.
And as for “tricking” him into staying in Moscow? The Dumaz US State Dept canceled his Passport. No where to go. No place to run to. No place to hide. We forced him to stay in Sheremetyevo no man's land. Man w/o a country.
Russia has tracked anyone with significant access for decades.
absolutely - this “defector” should be driving taxis
Edward Snowden or Barack Obama?Who is responsible for the deaths of more US citizens?
Edward Snowden or Barack Obama?Who has profited the most from their actions?
Edward Snowden or Barack Obama?
Is this Karpichkov on the CIA payroll?
“The big thing was that Snowden made us less safe via his revelations.”
The spying is not to make us safer. It is to control us.
I hear this accusation bandied about. It is unprovable.
Along with Hillary and who knows who else.
pure crud stories like this tell us more about the author that the point the author is trying to make. it enables us to identify who is on the payroll.
I still think that the Soros Administration was in on the deal. Any intel that is shared with our enemies can now be blamed on Snowden, and the NSA’s reputation with the American people has been destroyed.
By extension, the entire intel community’s standing with the American public has been diminished. Let’s see, degrade our military and our intelligence agencies, and anything they report against this corrupt regime will be dismissed.
Stalin was a piker compared to this crew.
The enemy is globalism imo; because in order to make it work rights must be taken away and authoritarianism installed.
Basically the opposite of the founding fathers.
Wow, this story is utterly implausible.
TRICKED him into staying in Russia, man oh man, that is RICH.
That is delusional.
